In partnership with Weeksville Heritage Center, National Black Theatre once again presented The Black Woman She Does Exist, an evening of commissioned work that was inspired by and in response to seminal texts written by Black women artists and activists of the 60's such as Dr. Barbara Ann Teer, Ella Baker, and the women of SNCC. These works were created by the next generation of vital Black women voices; writers Mfoniso Udofia, Chisa Hutchinson, and Staceyann Chin. Seeking to strengthen the bonds between past and present, and in addition to the commissioned work, NBT has gathered pioneering Black women legends of the theater community to perform the original texts.
